Will Trae Young Be a Game Changer?

By Hunter Swanson | Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Do you know how hard it is to lead the entire NCAA in scoring? How about leading it all in assists? No one can do it in both – oh wait, yeah they can. Just ask Trae Young, the nineteen-year-old prodigy out of Oklahoma. Did I mention he’s a freshman? This young man’s potential is through the roof, but his future is still a hotly contested subject:

He has unlimited range and a quick trigger
He can see the whole floor and recognizes plays before they happen
He is a natural leader and understands the game better than most

He turns the ball over way too much
He is too small for the next level
He doesn’t play defense

Even with all the debate over Trae Young’s chances of high-level success, no one denies that he is one of the top prospects in this year’s NBA Draft. Check out ESPN’s video to see how Trae Young has prepared for the NBA with Athletic Gaines powered by Sports Academy and what he hopes to accomplish when he gets drafted.
